Default Unable to do a program due to covid

My husband has a program to do but the facility that he is in does not have the program there he got a 12-month continuance because of not taking the program. He cant do the program because they are not doing any transfers because of covid 19. Is there anyone that is going through this same issue and what is bring done. I fined it very unfair because its not that he cant its just not available and he still got a 12 month flop.

I'm pretty sure it's that same way in all prisons across the US.

And don't think they won't use it to their advantage. My man's prison says on their website they offer all sorts of programs and schooling and other bs. Do they? Nope!

In NY, all programming had been stopped for months. They are attempting to run via alternative means. Half classes with chairs 6 feet, (practically 1/4) of a class 4 days a week with “cell study”.
Is it working? Is Covid gone?
The balance is a tough decision. Is there staff to run the programs? If one person in the class feels a symptom, everyone quarantines.

It is a stressful time for everyone, hopefully with a vaccine on the horizon we can change for the better.
But better be safe than sorry.
